    KDE Plasma Removal Not Working

    Okay so I may be a complete n00b or begginer to ubuntu/linux but I am a very quick learner, I understand a lot already after only using it for a few days, and already removed windows from my computer(Good Riddens).

    Anyways being new to the linux scene I had to give a new Desktp Enviroment a try, and I tried KDE Plasma just to find out that I am perfectly happy with Ubuntu's great new look Unity. I was going to keep KDE on there in case some friends came over and wanted to try out my new linux os but ran into a slight annoyance an the KDE Plasma login screen started showing up instead of the beautifull looking Unity login .

    So I went on a hunt to learn how to remove KDE completly and I found the great website of http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntucat/pure-ubuntu-13-04/, so I opened up terminal and gave it a try and it removed some things I think because it asked for comfirmation and I said yes, and at the end it said some things were not removed, but I restarted computer and its still there in perfect working condition. Now im going crazy I just want pure ubuntu back . I try the terminal commands again and this is what I get

    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help resolve the situation:
    
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     winetricks : Depends: wine or
                           wine-unstable but it is not installable
    E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages
    I hope someone can help with the complete removal because now that it wont remove I really want to remove it lol.
    Thanks in advanced and I am glad to be a part of the ubuntu forums

    Re: KDE Plasma Removal Not Working

    I was able to change the login screen but I still would like KDE to be removed without having to re-install ubuntu.

    Re: KDE Plasma Removal Not Working

    How did you go about installing KDE in the first place? Did you just install kubuntu-desktop?

    I used the terminal command
    sudo apt-get install kde-plasma-desktop

    Re: KDE Plasma Removal Not Working

    In theory, all you should have to do is this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge kde-plasma-desktop
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    If you explicitly installed any other KDE packages, that might complicate things. But the idea of "autoremove" is that it's going to remove all the automatically-installed dependencies when the explicitly installed package that caused them to be installed is removed.
